Airborne Sensor Navigator Training

The scope of work for an airborne sensor-operator has really changed a lot in the last 15 to 20 years. In the very early days it was super important having solid navigation capabilities and of course a good understanding of the topic as such. While the years has passed and GNSS technology improved the data quality a lot, the work & responsibility of the flight crew members has changed a lot.

Looking into the present, the workload of an airborne sensor operator has increased a lot. Compared to the analogue age it is now required having strong IT knowledge too.

If needed, we can supply up to a fundamental full scope sensor-operator training. This includes not only a „how to use & handle“ of the sensor equipment. Additionally it gives the trainee a wide overview of all involved preparation, following processes, and the competence of judging the range of his decisions
For airborne sensor-operators it is really important being able to think outside the box and to understand the relation between not always obviously connected subjects. It is a really responsible position which should not be underestimated neither from the workers side, nor from the management level.

The highest potential for having unexpected high costs is during the data acquisition, but at the same time this is the place for good optimizing.

Make your staff able being an efficient sensor navigator, who is ready for making the right decisions if needed.
